My friends always eat the tacos here and I have a burrito and we totally love it. Listen to the specials they are usually great. Count with some waiting time because that place is very tiny but always packed. The staff is super friendly. Would recommend it.

My fiancé and I love Swell Taco so much that I had them cater his birthday party last year! We love going into Babylon village and getting a delicious burrito or taco. The prices are very reasonable and the daily specials are always interesting and different. Love getting chips while waiting for our food too!

No fajitas, artificial tasting lime mix in margaritas, and indigestion afterwards. Overall the was average, the place cozy and congenial, the prices reasonable, and the portions were large, however the selection is geared towards millennials and teens. I would incorporate healthier options as well as authentic Mexican dishes. Not what we expected based on the reviews and don't think we... More

Love it. Been there several times. Some reviewers might say they prefer the food at Bubba's burritos, but I far prefer the atmosphere at Swell b/c you can actually get a seat with a waiter/waitress (rather than having a line of people constantly formed down the center of the restaurant like Bubba's). This is huge when you have little kids... More

Maybe it was the Margaritas but today is the first time I read swell and got the double meaning! I love these tacos, fresh, flavorful and inventive! This may look like a family place but look out, the drinks bring on a great buzz for a lightweight like myself. Burritos - aim to please and succeed, my husband has a... More

Come here often and we love the food. Always get the burrito and the flautas and tacos. All delicious food and the chips and guacamole are deliciously. Always worth the stop.
